A seaweed with fibrous, jade-coloured fronds, nori has the highest protein content of all seaweeds (48 per cent, dry weight) and is rich in iodine sodium, vitamins A, B1 and niacin. It's sold in sheets in health food shops and used in cooking - particularly in Japanese sushi. It comes from the same family of seaweeds as laver, that grows around the shores of Britain.
